Cropped Out - again

...and we are back with more news and photos from last weekends Mini Retreat.

Remember we told you about the gorgeous LO designed by Ifa Zainon - well we have a photo.

Worth waiting for yes? - The kit is made up from Crate Paper Brooke Collection and we have a few left for sale. We also have a couple of the previous kit we shared Bee Happy from Nikki Sivils - Just give us a ring or email us Both kits are JAM PACKED with papers and embellishments more than enough for just one LO.

and to prove how hard we worked - Chris (fab Cheesecake maker), Jo and Dawn -

and Mary and June

The third kit we were GIVEN was made up from Jillibean Soup - this was our 'Ready Steady Scrap' kit. Which come with rules - easy enough you have to deign a LO add it to the gallery - 'stick it on the wall' lol and use ONLY what is in the kit no extras although you can use tools.

We had some fabulous LO's - all the papers are double sided and the LO's all look so different. We then got to vote for our favourite LO - we had 3 winners and the photos for this will be posted next time - so come back they are worth a look.

So finally some pictures of US in the glorious sunshine

all CROPPED out

but we did have a fabulous time - if you missed it listen up.......

We started the day at 10 with coffee/tea and treats - well lets be honest coffee/tea and treats were consumed ALL day - its the law isn't it when you are scrapping with a group?

We had 2 class kits one from Sue and one from the incredibly talented Ifa Zainon.

First up was BEE HAPPY - using the gorgeous Willow Bee paper from Nikki Sivils

and a quick peak at all the busy bees!!!
